Good Morning!

I had so much fun with that DoodleFactory 'Final Frontier' set from Starving Artistamps last week, that I wanted to make a couple more!

I really liked how the background turned out on my 'Peace On Earth' card turned out, so I played with the sponged background again. It's actually really easy to do one you know how. Before applying the sponged background, I inked up a couple of the planets with Versamark ink and stamps them onto the piece watercolor paper. Then I applied Kaleidoscope embossing powder and heat set it. For the sponged colors, I applied a layer of Broken China blue from Distress Inks. Then I applied Buckaroo Blue from SU over the Broken China, leaving some of it showing through. Last, I applied some Black Soot, sparingly, to the edges of the piece and into the middle of the card, careful to leave the light spots still show. After I added all the planets and moons, I added some 'stars' with some Star Dust Stickles. Now the whole piece looks like outer space and the milky way!

This next card came together really quickly. The Final Frontier set has large versions of all the robots and the aliens, but it also contains the mini 1" versions too. All lined up, I thought they'd make a great card from 'the gang'. So I just stamped them all in a row, colored them up and used some decorative scissors (probably my most favorite tools) to give the panel some interest. The cog paper is a recent find from Michaels.
A few people left questions for me in the comments section last week about some of my cards, but if you don't have your email turned on in your profile, I don't have a way of replying to you, so if you have a question, feel free to use the chat box on the right hand side. That way, I can leave you a reply! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have another post scheduled in a little bit that you won't want to miss! :)
